MOST AMAZING BUSINESS BOOK I HAVE EVER PICKED UP!

I have read business books.. and a LOT of them! This was the first to break EVERY step down, spoke to women, but still kept every concept seriously business related. I mean "REAL" business related.
For the first time, I understand business finances..i've been doing it WRONG the entire time! I have also NOT been paying myself, a HUGE no, no, EVEN if your a one person star-up! You MUST read this book if you want to start RIGHT! Like I said, I have read what have been touted to be the "best" business books on the market... not one of them tops this one!

Recommend!

Very good information... the only reason that I did not give a 5 star rating is because of the narration. The reader sounds like she's talking to a child a little too often for my taste. Otherwise, it has some very basic operational information for the new women owned business!!
